Review: Suzanne Collins – Mockingjay

At first when I was reading this book I thought it wasn’t going to be as actioned packed as the first two, and for the first part of the book, it was definitely more political than action packed. But it all picked up again about a third of the way through the book and it was back to non-stop action. As with most action books you expect people to die, but the choice of who died in this book really shocked me. I can see how it was used to...

Now Reading: Suzanne Collins – Mockingjay

On to book 3 of this series, and unfortunately it’s the last one. I love reading a series of books (especially one as good as this), but the worst part of it is always coming to the end. With a series, you always get more involved with the characters and the story, so it’s hard to let go. But with the last two books being so good, I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with this one. It’s only a couple of days until the...

Review: Suzanne Collins – Catching Fire

All I can say about this book is that it was better than the first, which is saying something because I loved the first one. There are plenty of reviews of this book on many WordPress blogs that will tell you what happens in this book, so I don’t really want to go into that too much here. Besides, I know my dad is starting reading the first one, so I don’t want to spoil this one too much for him (if he even reads this!). When the...

Now Reading: Suzanne Collins – Catching Fire (The Hunger Games Pt 2)

After the speed in which I read the first book in this series, I can’t wait to get started on this. I might have to slow down a bit though or it’ll all be over too quickly! After the end of the last book, I really have no idea what will happen in this one. My friend Abi mentioned something about Gale, so maybe he will have more involvement in this book? With it being Mother’s Day tomorrow (eek – should probably go and buy...

Review: Suzanne Collins – The Hunger Games

I’m kind of ashamed to say I devoured this book in less than a day. I now know why all the reviews I’ve read say that you just can’t put it down once you’ve started it. I’m going to try not to spoil the story too much in case you haven’t read it yet and you’re planning to do so – I’ve already persuaded my dad and brother to give it a try. The book is aimed at teenagers, so it’s pretty...

Now Reading: Suzanne Collins – The Hunger Games

I don’t really know what this book is about, but I’ve seen a LOT of blog posts about it when I’ve been browsing WordPress book-related blogs. There’s a film coming out soon, so I want to read the books before the film comes out so that I can decide whether I want to see the film or not (I always have to read the book before watching the film). My friend Abi also recommended this book and she’s usually got very good...
